31 Days of Halloween – Oct 14

31 Days of Halloween Banner

We continue our 31 Days of Halloween Celebration today with another great project by Judi Kauffman, talented creator, designer and teacher. She frequently provides projects for the Queen’s Inkling Blog and teaches classes in the darling store The Queen’s Ink. She uses lots of Stampendous, and we’ve had a ton of fun getting to know her! She doesn’t have a blog, so we’re featuring her great Halloween projects here! We’ll have them up on our website with full instructions and supplies so you can create these great projects yourself. Look at these adorable tins for candy. They are Trader Joe’s mint tins converted for Halloween!

Saturday Sketch Challenge

This week’s challenge is brought to you by the Scrappy Chick, Cyndi B. She came up the the delicious idea to do a “recipe” sketch. And that isn’t what you’d think it would be. You’re not expected to make recipe cards. A recipe sketch challenge is where we give you a list of things you need to include in your card or scrapbook page. For this challenge, we’d like you to use:

  • the color black
  • some glitter (or bling)
  • ribbon

Pretty simple, right? It doesn’t have to be Halloween theme. The Design Team members just made their samples Halloween themed because we’re in the beginning of the spooky season right now.

Here’s the example Cyndi came up with. She used:

Cyndi also made this darling door hanger for a different sketch challenge she’s going to have on her blog later, but it happens to fit for our challenge, too! Cyndi used these products in her hanger:

Wendy made a door hanger, too (they make awesome one-of-a-kind Halloween decorations!). Here’s her list of Stampendous products used:

Jen created this crafty card with these supplies:

And the winners from last week’s sweet and simple challenge are:

Michelle! This fun and playful everyday card is absolutely adorable! She stamped the images with the Flower Chat Perfectly Clear Stamp Set. We love the cheery color palette and embellishments!

Also, congratulations to Carol! She stamped this stylish card that would surely bring a smile to anyone’s face. She used our NEW Thinking Bouquet Perfectly Clear Stamps Set, which you can find at your local store supplying Stampendous stamps. It will be available on our website soon!

Stampendous Sketch Challenge!

Jenn Dove came up with the idea to do a monochromatic design for this week’s sketch challenge! That means that you can make a card or scrapbook page using one color of your choosing and any gradations of that color. Her example is this sweet and simple black and white card using our NEW Yule Penguin Perfectly Clear Stamps.

Pam made a festive Halloween card only using shades of purple. In her card she used the NEW Cling Stamp Hang Out Spider Set.

We’d like to congratulate last week’s challenge winners, Carol and Regla! The challenge was to use an Autumn color palette. Carol’s cheery card was made using the ever-so-popular Ruffled Bloom stamp, which come in Cling Rubber, too!

Regla designed a card with a wily Fluffles falling into a pile of leaves. She used the Fluffles Leap stamp. And if you think this card couldn’t get any cuter, the inside says “happy fall”:

We will be sending them a fun Stampendous surprise in the mail! You could be one of the lucky winners this week! So get out your stash and make something beautiful with Stampendous products. Post your creation to your blog, website, or in any public forum like Paper Craft Planet.com, Splitcoast Stampers.com, Stamp Shack.com or others. Copy the link to your card and paste it into the comment section of this blog post.  Find out more information by clicking on the “Sketch Challenge Rules” link at the top of this blog.

We can’t wait to see what you create with our products! You may use any other products that you like to complete your project!
